Seminar on coastal management and protection in the context of the COHERENT project

torsdag 14 nov 19
COHERENT-projektet, der nu er to år ind i dets treårige varighed, inviterer til et seminar inden for rammerne af kyststyring og beskyttelse med ekstern deltagelse og præsentationer af eksterne partnere, advisory board members og COHERENT partners. 

Coastal management and protection in the context of the COHERENT project 

November 14, 2019 | 12.00 – 14.45 
DTU meeting centre, building 101, Møderum 2, 1st floor 

In relation to the COHERENT project, which is now two years into its three year duration, we would like to invite to a seminar within the context of coastal management and protection with external participation and keynote presentations by Zoran Vojinovic, IHE Delft, and Christian Helledie, Niras. 
The COHERENT project addresses coastal management and protection in a broad setting from geophysical flood modelling, stakeholder interaction and end-user needs, economic damage cost calculation and tool development - all at temporal scales from immediate hazard prevention to climate change adaptation. In addition to these topics, the seminar will also include future perspectives as also facilitated by an open debate where contributions by participants are welcome.  

12.00 – 12.45    Data, models and decision support for climate change adaptation and hydro-meteorological risk reduction: from PEARL to RECONECT 

Zoran Vojinovic, Associate Professor at IHE Delft Institute for Water Education with over 20 years of combined on-the-ground and academic experience working in various aspects of water industry. Leader of the EC funded FP7 PEARL project which aims to develop adaptive and resilient sociotechnical risk management measures and strategies for coastal cities against extreme hydro-meteorological events.

12.45 – 13.15    Coastal protection at the north coast of Zealand and flood protection at Enø 

Christian Helledie, Department Manager Coastal Engineering at Niras with national and international experience in coastal- and flood protection projects. Currently involved in Projekt Nordkysten, a coastal protection project covering 60 km of coastline across three municipalities in Northern Zealand. 

13.15 – 13.35    A welfare economic based approach for assessing climate hazard costs in the Coastal zone 

Kirsten Halsnæs, Professor MSO in climate and economy at the Technical University of Denmark, with more than 20 years of experience working with the economic impacts of climate change local and global scale.

Nils Drønen, Chief Coastal Engineer at Danish Hydraulic Institute with expertise in coastal dynamics and engineering, science and engineering computer models for fluids, sedimentary motion and morphology as well as risk assessment of climate change and sea level rise impacts on coastal physical environment. 

13.55 – 14.15    Klimarobuste og multifunktionelle kyster - et fatamorgana i Danmark
